Getting you set up for tonight’s Jets game with the latest news, video and audio.

Note: Puck drop is at 7 pm CDT tonight as the Jets go up against the Flames tonight in Winnipeg. After the game, be sure to check out for all the post-game reaction.

Note II: Normally we would want you to join the conversation on the Illegal Curve Post-Game Show once the final buzzer sounds but we don’t get those underway until the regular season starts on the 14th. However you can still hit that subscribe button so you’ll always know when we go live.

Note III: TSN made the “genius” decision to not broadcast tonight’s game so if you want to watch it you’ll have to do so either in person or via the Jets YouTube account.
